Cat, your writing and insight is impossible to stop reading. In a slightly different order than you wrote, I’ve created an acronym for this inspiration/lesson that should be easy to remember for, both, ourselves and when with our friends: Listen End Leave Over (LELO)

My belief is that our “gut” is God or whomever/whatever your Higher Power. A little over a year ago, I read a Bible verse at a no-better-than-perfect time for me and recite it daily now (often several times ;~D) changing you/me to I: “In righteousness I shall be established; I shall be far from oppression, for I shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near me.” Isaiah 54:14 Whether you believe in God or the Bible or not, that statement alone is empowering!

To everyone in any kind of questionable relationship, LELO!

Thanks Cat. Very informative. I have a 27 year old daughter and I have to remind her to be aware of several of the tips u mentioned. I am going to order ur book for her asap.

Oh, Cat I too got totally wrapped up in this particular trial! I was fearful that this jury would be as incompetent as the Casey Anthony jury, but thank the Lord, they got it right! Your thoughts above are so true and I hope every person takes heed in the fact that there are monsters among us, monsters who will do us harm! I so wish that Travis had listened to his friends that saw Jodi for exactly what she is! Thank you Cat for sharing your thoughts, and your words of wisdom.

Wow—-I found out the hard way and you are so accurate in everything you wrote.

Sometimes it is much harder to detect evil or whatever you want to call it because disturbed people can be very good actors…look at Ariel Castro. For 10 years he had those poor women locked up in his house (in a populated city) and his neighbors, co-workers and even his own family never suspected something was very wrong with him.

I’ve been blessed with the same great guy since I was 21 and I’m now 45, but have seen monsters like you describe here come and go in the lives of people I care about. You can also apply these lessons to a non-romantic partner, friend, sister, etc. If the suit fits certain folks, then run for the hills! This is a great article. I’m going to bookmark it for my 7 yo daughter to share with her someday.
